The great part about music is that you can write a song about anything, but for this list we're ranking the best songs about strangers. Many songs are about sexual experiences with strangers, while others are about not being able to rexognize your lover after years of drifting apart. Do you have a favorite stranger song? Whether it's rock, rap, country, or anything in between, we want you to vote up your favorites on this list of songs about strangers. You can even add additional tracks to the poll if any good stranger songs are missing, so feel free to contribute to the list. We've included YouTube videos to accompany the songs when available, so think of this page as a stranger songs playlist.

Some of the songs below include Don't Talk to Strangers by Dio, Perfect Strangers by Deep Purple, and Strangers Room by Crosby & Nash. A song can qualify to be on this in two ways. First, the song has stranger in the title or lyrics, or some close variation of that word. Second, the song is conceptually about strangers, even if it doesn't specifically mention that word.
